CSW65 side-events

Sweden is co-sponsoring three side-events within the framework of the CSW65 priority theme; Women’s full and effective participation and decision-making in public life, as well as the elimination of violence, for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.

The focuses of the three webinars are; the importance of comprehensive sexuality education in addressing gender and social norms and promoting the rights of women and girls in their path for leadership; how governments, international organisations and the private sector can work on transforming the public and private sectors to deliver on gender equality and women’s economic empowerment; and the power of the Istanbul Convention as a comprehensive and harmonised response to ensure a life free from violence for all women.
